Not just any old cheesecake… there’s a reason why this fluffy, burnished beauty is so famous. The world’s most legendary cheesecake comes from La Viña, a small pintxo bar in San Sebastián’s old town, but its lore stretches far.

In this short class, our expert chefs will reveal all the secrets and teach you how to make the real La Viña cheesecake, inimitable burnt top and all. You’ll taste the cheesecake the way it’s meant to be eaten, perfectly paired with a sherry that takes the luscious dessert to another level. Once you’ve feasted enough, you’ll get to take your creation home with you, armed with the recipe and techniques needed to recreate it. While your cheesecake is baking, you'll get to try your hand at making some classic pintxos and enjoy them with txakoli, the local Basque white wine. 

This class includes:

    instruction with expert chefs
    hands-on preparation of dishes
    plating techniques
    taster of any food prepared
